Korean actor Byung Hun Lee will be in the soon to be released Hollywood film, “The Magnificent Seven,” directed by Antoine Fuqua. This is Lee’s sixth Hollywood film. A Western, it will be released Friday.
It’s refreshing to see an Asian actor in a Hollywood Western among some of the industry’s best such as Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke.
Lee plays Billy Rocks, a knife-throwing master among “The Magnificent Seven.” Lee was in Hawaii to attend the Hawaii International Film Festival in October 2005 for his film “Bittersweet Life,” where he played a gangster who takes revenge on his boss.
At the screening of his film, the fans in Hawaii clapped when Lee’s character finally kills his mob boss to Lee’s surprise. Then in 2009 Lee was in his first Hollywood film, “G.I Joe: The Rise of Cobra,” as Storm Shadow.
